Participants of the Camping Merit Camp will learn camping and pioneering skills such as lashing, knot tying, camp cooking, compass, orienteering, Dutch oven cooking, camp safety, and pioneering. This is an elective camp that cannot be counted towards earning the Natonal Trail of the Saber. It is for Adventure Ranger boys who are graduates of AJTC and Expedition Ranger boys currently in 9th grade or higher. Expedition Rangers do NOT have to have attended AJTC. This camp is a great learning experience and an opportunity to fill the gap between AJTC and JA for boys who have finished one or the other, but are not yet old enough for the next.
